Heres a roundup of everything that happened on Stocks to Watch today:

Enid Alvarez for the Wall Street Journal

We looked at Bristol-Meyers Squibb’s (BMY) failed drug test, considered much the failure could cost the pharmaceutical giant, tried to look on the bright side, and explained why it’s a big win for Merck (MRK).

We highlighted Jefferies’ upgrade of U.S. Steel (X), Baird’s downgrade of Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (REGN), and wondered if Chesapeake Energy (CHK) has turned the corner.

We explained why Tesla Motors (TSLA) needs to raise money and why it doesn’t matter, why General Electric (GE) might be running out of juice, and how a potential Biogen (BIIB) takeover would be different than most.

Top Energy Stocks For 2019: Weatherford International plc(WFT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Wall Street suffered a sharp drop on Tuesday, with major benchmarks posting substantial declines in response to a combination of economic factors. The yield on the 10-year Treasury bond climbed above 3% for the first time since 2014, but of greater concern to many market participants were remarks in major corporate earnings reports suggesting that business conditions had likely hit their peak and were poised to deteriorate going forward. With raw materials costs starting to pick up, many manufacturers are reporting inflationary pressures that could hurt profits. Yet even as the broader indexes fell, some individual companies had good news to report. Sanmina (NASDAQ:SANM), Helix Energy Solutions (NYSE:HLX), and Weatherford International (NYSE:WFT) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Own Right Now

In the last issue of Fast-Track Millionaire, my readers and I learned a few basics about nanotechnology — the manipulation of matter on a molecular scale — an application that I think is going to yield some impressive, knock-the-cover-off-the-ball gains in the next decade.

One of the areas that likely will lead this charge — if you’ll excuse the pun — is batteries. Small ones that can last a long time and provide the juice your device, be it an iPad or a pacemaker, needs to do its job. This is a MASSIVE market that’s just getting bigger and busier — everything that’s connected needs power, and everything is, indeed, being connected these days.

But small batteries, as great as they are, are not the only thing that is exciting about the ever-changing world of energy storage. Big batteries — that is, super-large mega king-sized batteries — are also very interesting, and vital to the power grid.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Own Right Now: ConocoPhillips(COP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Last fall, ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) outlined its three-year operating plan, anticipating that it could increase production at a 5% compound annual growth rate assuming oil averaged $50 a barrel. While the return to a growth trajectory was nice to see, its forecast paled in comparison to rivals like EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG) and Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC), which both project double-digit oil production growth rates over the next few years.

    “Bell added that President Trump's decision to exit the Iran deal will lead to sanctions on Iran, which is OPEC's third largest supplier of oil, averaging 3.8 million barrels per day (mmb/d),” said Rosenbluth. “CFRA expects Iran's output to be realistically reduced by about 300,000 b/d. CFRA's equity analytical team thinks investing opportunities are found in not only upstream E&P companies, but also downstream refiners as the spread between WTI and Brent prices widen.”

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) has worked hard to distinguish itself from other oil companies over the past few years by shifting its focus from growing production to increasing shareholder value. That led it on a path to shed high-cost assets so that it could slim down to a company that could thrive at lower oil prices.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    According to a recent report by Reuters, ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) has held talks with investment banks about helping the company unload its stake in Cenovus Energy (NYSE:CVE). That sale could net the oil giant more than $2 billion in cash, which would bolster its already sizable cash war chest and give it more money to allocate in creating value for investors.

    Oil and gas investors have been through the wringer over the past few years. Even the most stable investments in this industry — pipelines, processing, and logistics — haven’t been spared. Case in point: Shares of Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP) have declined 18% over the past three years despite the company posting consistent revenue and cash flow growth. To top it off, there has been a slew of regulatory and tax changes in recent months that will have a significant impact on this particular industry.

    Kinder Morgan, Inc. (NYSE:KMI) is one of the largest midstream companies in North America, and it has major dividend plans between 2018 and 2020. By the end of that period, it expects to increase its dividend from $0.50 per share per year (in 2017) to $1.25. That’s huge dividend growth in a short period of time. But don’t get too enamored by that news; the dividend will still be lower than it was before the midstream oil and gas company’s 75% dividend cut in 2016. If you’re looking for dividend income in the midstream space, take a look at longtime dividend payers ONEOK, Inc. (NYSE:OKE) and Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. (NYSE:MMP) instead.
